The WisCon Chronicles, Vol 8 New

The WisCon Chronicles, Vol 8*

edited by Rebecca J. Holden

$15.00 (trade paperback)

WisCon is filled with strong opinions and loud voices. Central to any discussion about definitions of feminisms are questions about outsiders and insiders: Who is WisCon? Who is feminist? Whose opinion matters? Whose voice is heard? Who counts? Who belongs to which generation and does that matter? What does WisCon mean now? What will it mean for future generations? This year’s volume of The WisCon Chronicles collects stories, poems, essays, blogs, and speeches that explore these questions within the framework of the feminism(s) of WisCon spanning “waves,” generations, and media.


*Publication of this book was partially supported by a grant from the Society for the Furtherance & Study of Fantasy & Science Fiction (SF3).


The Stone Boatmen

The Stone BoatmenNew

by Sarah Tolmie

$20.00 (trade paperback)

"...a powerfully original first novel"
   — Faren Miller, Locus, April 2014

"Certain imaginative novels never best-sell, yet remain alive, a singular treasure to each new generation that finds them — books such as Islandia, The Worm Ouroboros, Gormenghast. The Stone Boatmen has the makings of one of these quiet classics. It is lucid yet complex. Its strangeness fascinates, captivates. To read it is to find yourself in a country a long, long way from home, taken on a unforeseeable journey — and when it's over, you wish you were still there. "
   — Ursula K. Le Guin


Numa

Myths, Metaphors, and Science Fiction

by Sheila Finch

$12.00 $9.00 (paperback)

"This welcome discussion of the connections between future fiction and stories about human inception emphasizes how mythic roots contribute to the emotional power of narrative. Finch investigates the inexplicable awe and wonder that emanates from close encounters between myth and science fiction. This juxtaposition emphatically indicates that science fiction is the predominant mythic metaphor of our time.”
—Marleen S. Barr


New Amazonia

New Amazonia

by Elizabeth Burgoyne Corbett
Heirloom Books, No. 3
With an Introduction by Alexis Lothian

$15.00 (paperback)

“Corrupt, Degraded, Rotten to the core is British Civilisation, and yet we find women who ought to know better, actually pretending that they are perfectly contented with the existing order of things,” declares the narrator of New Amazonia. Raging against an antifeminist statement signed by “ladies” opposing the cause of women’s suffrage, a writer falls asleep in 1889 and wakens, in company with a hashish-smoking “masher,” in a future world run by women. Originally published in 1889, New Amazonia tells the story of how this future world came to be and reveals its shiny, futuristic marvels as well as its government-administered horrors.


Spring in Geneva

Spring in Geneva

by Sylvia Kelso

$12.00 $9.00 (paperback)

Mary Shelley, a young banker's son, and William, an excessively tall man with a "lividly hued visage, watery eyes, and blackened lips within a straggling beard," pit their wits and derring-do against Lord Byron, master of steampunk technology, and his thuggish minions.
